I wonder what's the Venn Diagram overlap of guys who refuse to wear masks on principle and guys who, in their lives, have at some point entertained fantasies of giving their lives to fight a "Red Dawn"-style foreign invasion.
Some people actually do get “cancelled,” and — as often seems the case — it’s because a big company has zero appetite for even the whiff of this kind of controversy and can easily dispose of the offending person. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/08/business/boeing-resignation-niel-golightly.html?referringSource=a...
